Filming at St Cuthberts Mill

A film crew from The Sunday Times was filming two exceptional artists yesterday in the St Cuthberts Mill gardens. We have sponsored three short films for 'The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2015' (Parker Harris) micro website. 

Artist Lucy Willis - Lucy used Saunders Waterford,
Millford and Bockingford paper for the demo's.
Some of Lucy Willis' work  produced during filming.

The two artists filmed painting yesterday were Lucy Willis and Danny Markey. Both were very individual in style and technique, and the process was fascinating to watch. Of course they were using our very own papers, Saunders Waterford, Millford and Bockingford! Thanks to the team for doing such a great job!
